Pieve di Cadore is a comune (municipality) in the province of Belluno in the Italian region of Veneto,[4] about 110 kilometres (68 miles) north of Venice and about 35 km (22 miles) northeast of Belluno. "Pieve" means "Parish church".[5] It is the birthplace of the Italian painter Titian.[6]

With its strategic location, the town was a medieval stronghold with fortifications, called the "walled city of the Veneto."[7] The main sight is the Palazzo della Magnifica Comunità ("Palace of the Magnificent Community"), built in 1447 by the eponymous council which then ruled the city. It has a merloned tower which was completed in 1491.


A highway, SS51, connects the town with other communities in the Cadore Dolomite region.[8]
